Another bonus, for William, was the flexibility of his course, and UWS’s encouragement to seek work placements while he was studying.
William said: “I didn’t want to graduate with just a degree, and no hands-on industry experience. Taking a placement with Morgan Stanley – one of the world’s biggest banks – was a win-win situation; they allowed me to continue with my studies, while paying me a competitive salary.
“Morgan Stanley sent me on courses, in London, and New York, where I was learning from the best. That kind of experience is invaluable. I was 22, in New York, and being taught by the best – what’s not to like?”
